Elkhorn swims Saturday in the SLC Varsity Meet at Delavan-Darien High School in Delavan.

Coach Jamie Richardson said the Elks posted 36 personal best times against the Comets.

“That was pretty good,” Richardson said. “It’s sometimes tough, when the competition isn’t there, to rise to the occasion and get personal best times. That was nice to see from the girls.”
